Student Life

Welcome New Students!

Hofstra will welcome the class of 2023 and transfer students to campus with a week of programming, excitement, and new connections beginning August 29 with Move-In Day.

Check-in starts at 8 a.m. at the Intramural Fields on North Campus, where students will receive their Hofstra ID card, class shirt, and other important information and giveaways.

As students get settled, parents who did not attend family orientation during the summer are welcome to attend a mini-family orientation at 12:30 PM.

At 2:45 PM, students and their families will convene in the David S. Mack Sports Arena for the Welcome Convocation, officially welcoming new students to campus. Parents are invited to a reception in the Fitness Center immediately following the convocation.

After move-in and the convocation, Welcome Week activities begin and include BBQs, trips to New York City, school receptions, workshops, movie nights, and a club fair.

If you need further assistance, please contact the Orientation Office at orientation@hofstra.edu or 516-463-4874. We look forward to welcoming you to campus!
